1984. Bessie is a confident 16-year-old girl with the world at her feet, dreaming of what life will bring and what she'll bring to this life. Then everything comes crashing down. Her bright and trusting smile is lost, banished by shame - and a secret she'll carry with her for the rest of her life. 2021. The last 37 years have not been easy for Bess. At 53 she is visibly weary, and her marriage to Mario is in tatters. Watching her son in newlywed bliss - the hope, the trust, the joy - Bess knows it is time to face her own demons, and try to save her relationship. But she'll have to throw off the burden of shame if she is to honour that 16-year-old girl whose dreams lie frozen in time. Can Bess face her past, finally come clean to Mario, and claim the love she has longed to fully experience all these years?
